Swivel Sweeper Still Easier to Use Than The ol’ Broom

by Theresa on May 21, 2009 · 5 comments

Swivel Sweeper boasts that it's "the most advanced sweeper in the world." Well Anthony Sullivan always makes those kind of claims... This cordless sweeper has been around forever! We had one as a kid but it was only a manual powered one and it worked just fine for everyday use. The major difference with the newer version is that this ones rechargeable. There's no suction...the brushes actually do all the cleanup. The new model is called G2. The one they are demonstrating in the video is the G1 model.

Three parts make up the Swivel Sweeper. The main sweeper, the handle, the charger unit and battery. The [tags]swivel sweeper[/tags]instructions are mostly about assembly. A long drawn out read that should hold your interest for about...what was I saying? Anyway, the one thing you do get from them is the importance of the battery. An 8 hour charge gets you 45 minutes of sweeping bliss.

I bought my swivel sweeper second hand and please guide me on putting new batteries in it. Can’t get the battery holder apart.
Thanks much.

Linda, I have a link to the instruction manual from Thane.ca right here. You can see in “figure 4″ how to slide the battery in it. I hope this helps!

Save your money and use a broom. Too much of a hassle emptying out the tiny dirt tray, cutting out hair from the brush mechanism, and recharging battery, awful.

The only thing wrong with the Swivel sweeper is the battery. Why don’t you offer a Lithium-Ion batterry I know they cost more than the sweeper but you would probably sell a lot of them.
